We dont even know the problem yet. OP what exactly is the problem?!

It won't make any difference if he underclocks the RAM. Not performance of the PC unless it's a case of a unstable overclock but like said above we don't know what the problem is yet.

Slow boot. It was only an idea... How full is your SSD? I dont know how slower your boot is but the more full an SSD the slower it will be

"it doesn't seem to run as fast as I think it should when I am play COD games like Modern Warfare 3, Black OPS 2 and Ghosts"


What speeds are you getting and what are you expecting? Is this perceived or something you've measured for comparison since you initially built it?

That shows you how much I research when I bought the parts. I looked up the processor and it says 1300/1600 so I set it like you all were saying. Thank you! What I am trying to achieve is overclock it and run stable! I had some schooling in college for this type of stuff but I guess I have forgot what I didn't use. When I was buying the ram I was looking at what the motherboard could handle. There is so may settings in the bios I don't know where to start! I have only built 4 computer's in my life so I thought that it wouldn't be that hard to build a gaming one!

My computer was running smoothly until about 2 weeks ago and than out of the blue I got a error message saying that my computer was overclock to much and it reset itself. Now when it boots up it take about 3 or 4 minutes to get into windows. I did a scan on my hardware and it said that everything passed, so I am thinking it is in the bios correct me if I am wrong! When I am playing my games it does feel like it is running a quick as before. So I thought that I would ask the experts I here for help! What would you guys set the bios up for overclocking? Or should I change some hardware. This motherboard has a socket 1155 so I am limited in that area. The SSD is only half full so I don't think that it would be it, correct me if I am wrong.

Ok a couple things.

First off. There is no school for this kind of stuff, unless your getting into the nitty gritty of it, so dont bother lying to us.

Now that thats out of the way, read the following

The GPU and Processor are two different things. If your CPU is set to 1300MHz with a 1600MHz boost clock, thats a very bad thing. I think you meant to say the GPU is at that, which is great. If your GPU can get there and be stable, thats fantastic, especially on air. For the CPU overclock, take a look at this http://www.overclock.net/t/1291703/ivy-bridge-overclocking-guide-asus-motherboards It will tell you everything you need to know about how to overclock your CPU. Also what do you mean limited by socket 1155? Socket 1155 is just the socket type for Ivy-Bridge processors, just like 1150 is for Haswell processors and AM3+ is for most AMD processors. Your not limited on overclocking by socket type, your limited by the quality of the board you get and the chip you get. You have a maximus, so thats not a problem in any way, shape, or form so dont worry about that. Plus you have a fantastic cooler, which will help greatly with your overclocking. With that guide you should be able to be 100% stable at 4.5GHz on that 3770k.

Now, as to the slow boot times, how full is your SSD? Also, do you have windows installed on any of the other hdd's? Reset your bios on the motherboard by taking the little battery out and un-plugging the PSU from the wall for 1 minute, then put everything back in. That will reset the Cmos and Bios to default settings, and should bring your boot times back down to normal levels. Sometimes the Cmos and Bios get clogged up with information and it forgets to dump itself (doesnt happen often) so that could explain your slow boot times. Also check what settings, in the bios, you have set for the sata-port connected to your SSD. I forget what its supposed to be on (fairly sure its AHCI) so do a quick google search or search on these forums.

And again, please add your rig to your sig (tutorial in my sig), it helps everyone and then you dont have to post your rig in your post every time, it will just be there.

*EDIT*
You can check performance with a couple of things.

For HDD/SSD speeds, use HDtuner.
For FPS in games, use MSI afterburner. In the settings it has overlay options so you can see FPS in game.

I believe he was referring to the memory type spec for his CPU which is 1333/1600.

You were saying that my CPU doesn't accept ram 2400 for speed and the ram should be set on 1600 so I did that, that was want I meant to say. I am 61 years old and I did go to college for some of this stuff a long time ago. Thank for your help!
